I wanted to update everyone on the Making Wishes Come True contest! As you may recall, Fred Meyer graciously gifted (2) deserving families with $250 gift cards, and (3) additional families with $50 gift cards! And after that, they were able to give an additional (10) $25 gift cards!
Some of you were so inspired by Fred Meyer’s generosity and the stories I shared from readers that you’ve offered to step in and help. I’ve been continuously working behind the scenes to ensure as many families are helped as possible.
As of this posting, 28 families have either received help, or have been matched with someone who has offered to help them! And, approximately $1,500 in gift cards and/or gifts have gone to help these families ($900 of which was from Fred Meyer)! Each of these families has received a gift of at least $20 in value. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU to everyone who has generously helped a family or two. I also want to add that a portion of the credits and proceeds earned through this site have gone on to help families. So thank you to everyone who’s taken advantage of the Vitacost deal (please consider it if you haven’t yet!), purchased a Groupon, or even printed off a few Coupons.com coupons – whether knowingly or not, your support of this site has funneled into supporting deserving families!
I’ve also reached out to every family who initially wrote in for the Making Holiday Wishes Come True Contest to confirm if help was still truly needed or not. I still have 36 families who could really use some help, and 10 I’ve not heard from (so please, check your email if you haven’t in awhile).
I Would Like to Help!
If you can help a fellow Coupon Project family in need, the best way would be to send your monetary gift or Fred Meyer gift card donation to my post office box. I am now checking it daily in hopes of turning these gifts right around to the families who need them most. If you’d like to help, I’m asking you make a donation of at least $25 per family.

Of course, if you’d prefer to email me ahead of time or if you have any questions – just email me at angela @ thecouponproject dot com.
My wish this Christmas is to see as many of these families helped as possible. Thank you for helping that happen!
